Another busy month that saw us away from home for half the time, a two day market, Microman's first birthday, a trip to Adelaide for some wood shopping and again to Adelaide to stay by the beach for some grandie-sitting (yippee!!) after which we joined them for a trip to the zoo.
The autumn seedlings have put on steady growth and I have been busy tidying up the garden.
Doesn't include Greens fed to the chooks on a daily basis or herbs picked for use in the kitchen for cooking or tea making. For Salads, Juice and Stirfries I have been picking Amaranth, Silverbeet, Celery, Cress, Gotu Kola, Lettuce, Kale, Parsley, Beetroot and Sweet Potato Leaves which are not always weighed.
